    Sotto, Guingona renew call for SIM card registration after CDO blast

    Sotto, Guingona renew call for SIM card registration after CDO blast

    Senators Vicente "Tito" Sotto III and Teofisto Guingona III on Monday resurrected a proposal to register prepaid subscriber identity module (SIM) cards in light of last Friday's blast in Cagayan de Oro City that killed eight people and injured dozens of others.

    During Monday's session, Sotto said the registration of these plastic cards used in cellphones would enable authorities to easily track those who detonate explosive devices through mobile phones.

    "We've time and again called on telcos [telecommunication companies] to register prepaid SIM cards. It's been used for kidnapping and blackmail," Sotto pointed out.

    Guingona, who hails from Mindanao, backed Sotto's proposal, saying cellphones have been used "again and again" for criminal activities.

    "How many bombings do we have to wait for to register these SIM cards?" Guingona said on the Senate floor.

    The lawmakers suggested this after eight people were killed in a bomb explosion at the Limketkai Mall on Friday night.

    Authorities are still in the process of identifying who committed the blast, as well as the motive behind the incident. The police have released computerized facial composites of the three suspects in the bombing.

    In 2007, a bill was filed by then-Senator Richard Gordon proposing the registration of personal information of buyers of SIM cards, whether pre-paid or post paid.

    Senator Aquilino "Koko" Pimentel III, who considers Cagayan de Oro as his hometown, for his part, demanded the swift identification and prosecution of the "masterminds" of last Friday's blast.

    "I denounce this senseless killing of innocent and productive Filipinos. We want justice for the victims. The masterminds must be prosecuted and penalized now. The people expect and deserve no less than fast delivery of justice in this incident," he said in a privilege speech.

    Pimentel also said that all commercial establishments in the country should be required to have closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras.

    GMA News TV's “Balitanghali” reported Monday that the police are now studying a CCTV that showed one of the suspects. — KBK, GMA News

    Palace: SIM card registration may violate right to privacy
    July 30, 2013 12:35pm

    Malacañang on Tuesday said there is a need to carefully study the proposed registration of prepaid subscriber identity module (SIM) cards as it may violate a person's right to privacy.

    "The parameters of the current proposal to register prepaid SIM cards will have to be studied given that there may be implications on the constitutional right to privacy," deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said in a text message to reporters.

    She issued the statement after Senators Vicente "Tito" Sotto III and Teofisto Guingona III resurrected the proposal following Friday's bombing incident in Cagayan de Oro City that killed eight people and injured dozens of others.

    Investigators said the explosive device used in the incident was detonated through a mobile phone.

    Sotto said the registration of these plastic cards used in cellphones would enable authorities to easily track those who detonate explosive devices through mobile phones.

    Former Senator Richard Gordon in 2007 had also proposed the registration of personal information of buyers of SIM cards, whether prepaid or postpaid.

    Constitutional issues?

    At a separate briefing Tuesday, Valte said the President raised possible constitutional issues the last time the proposal was discussed.

    "The security or, under the general welfare clause, that you have to, of course, protect the citizenry vis-à-vis the constitutional right to privacy. Kasi iba iyong voluntary na ibinibigay mo iyong information mo to a private entity, iba iyong nagkakaroon ng compulsion sa ilalim ng batas na ibigay mo iyong personal information mo," she said.

    "In other countries, especially in the United States, that was done after 9/11," Valte added.

    But in the country's case, she said they need to study how it will be managed.

    "Because in some jurisdictions, hindi po iyong government agency iyong may hawak ‘nung information. For example, here in the Philippines, kapag postpaid subscriber ka, iyong telco iyong may hawak ‘nung information mo and there is a privacy policy that must be followed," she said.

    Valte likewise brought up the case of the prepaid subscribers, whose accounts are not registered with the telco.

    "One of the issues that should be looked into would be, if you buy a prepaid SIM card, what do you use to register? Will the telco have the ability to tell if you are submitting the correct information?" she said.

    "There are some details that need to be looked into; for example, what is required to be submitted," she added. — Kimberly Jane Tan/KBK/RSJ, GMA News

    SIM registration violation to privacy. BS.

    Freedom of Information violation to privacy. BS.

    National ID violation to privacy. BS.

    Lagyan ng sapat na safeguard para hindi maabuso.

    Kaya tayo hindi umaasenso e.

    ^^ True... napakalaking ginhawa ang National Id... just needed tight security to prevent misused, takot ata sila kasi nde na makakagawa ng alternate persona like Jose Pidal kapag may 1 id system na at madaling ma-trace all your transactions.

    kami ngang mga expat dito sa UAE (pero required lahat ng tao dito sa UAE) may national ID at registered ang sim cards sa mga telecoms. pero walang nagrereklamo kasi malaking tulong din talaga ito sa tao. pag nanakaw ang cp mo at sinaksakan ng sim ng iba, mata-track nila agad.

    kaya takot gumamit ng nakaw o pulot na cp dito ang tao eh. ang ginagawa (tulad kong nakapulot) pinapadala nalang dyan sa pinas.

    kahit dito sa qatar bago ka makabili ng sim card kailngan iparegister muna at need ng residence permit. pagninakaw ang cp mo sabihin mo lang sa police at sila maglolocate ng cp mo para sa iyo.

    takot lang naman dito hindi yung sa privacy, kung hindi yung mga takot dahil meron ginagawang hindi tama sa kanilang mga SIM...hahaha

    kahit na ID system ok lang yan, parang lisensya din yan sa kotse, so bakit di umaangal ang tao sa lisensya sa kotse, pwede din lagyan siguro pa nang safeguards yon parang like ATM siguro or pwede din part nang pamasahe, kung like pwede ma load yon at swipe mo lang sa mga likes nang LRT or Bus mas ok pa...hehehe

    at least kita mo din kung ginamit nang masamang loob sa kung saan lugar man at madali ma trace ang masamang loob, pero madami takot kasi takot kasi sila sa batas kaya nga walang batas sa pilipinas..hahahaha

    Ang mga dambuwala na duopoly na cellphone operator ang number one kontra sa prepaid sim card registration. Una mabubuking kasi ang tunay na dami na actual subscriber nila. Pagnagkataon since public listed sila PSE pwedeng bumagsak ang stock value nila. Pag lumabas ang tuting numero.

    2nd kailangan nila gumastos ng bagong subscriber database kasi ang system nila na pang prepaid hindi kaya mag register ng additional information sa network. Pangatlo, mabubulabog ang buong retail distribution network nila. Sa dami ba naman na anonymous sim card pack na binenta nila sa mga retailer malamang ayaw nila magrefund ng bayad.

    So ang bottom line since malakas ang kapit ni MVP at Ayala sa Palasyo, malabong mangyari ang binabalak na mandatory sim registration. In short hindi mangyayari itong sim registration dahil panahon ngayon ng mga KKK until 2016
